This Sunday night we hosted our first C3 Warriors Men’s Night. It was one of the most powerful nights in the history of our church! There were over 700 men in attendance, and God exceeded our expectations! This is a vision that God placed on Matt’s heart, and Sunday night, the vision became a reality!
Pastor Matt wrote a great follow-up on his blog, www.mattfry.com and I have included it below…
Do You Want to Be Part of A Movement or a Monument:
“I’m in awe of all God did at our first C3 Warriors Men’s Night. It was definitely an Ephesians 3:20 experience. About a year ago God gave me a vision to raise up 100 warriors…. Men who would stand up, step up, step out and speak up for the cause of Christ. I praise God for the women who God is using in our churches today to make a difference, where would we be without them? But it’s time for the men to step up and show strong leadership! We have been gathering as a prayer group on Thursday mornings for about year and last night was our first Men’s Night for the communitiy. Wow. God moved. Lives were changed. When we gave the altar call with no heads bowed, all eyes open and everyone looking around what an experience to see about 50 men come forward to receive Christ. Then when the call was given to become a warrior we ran out of room up front as about 700 men were up front and packed in the aisles making a commitment to be a warrior for Christ. My prayer is that we are experiencing a “movement” not a “monument”. That this wasn’t just a one time event but a movement with an eternal impact on our church and community.
I want to thank my friend and NFL all pro Kevin Mawae for coming and sharing from his heart a powerful message. Also congrats to the guys who won the cornhole tournament. That was a blast!
Hey, if you live in the area and you couldn’t make it, it’s not too late to be a part. Our next C3 Warrior Prayer Gathering is Thursday, July 22, 6am at C3 Church. We are going to have Starbucks and Krispy Kreme donuts. That’s a powerful combo: Starbucks, Krispy Kreme and the power of the Holy Spirit! 🙂 Spread the word and let’s see what all God will do in the hearts of men. Love you guys!”
Ladies, encourage your husbands and sons to be here on July 22 at 6:00am for the next Men’s Prayer Gathering and be part of the movement at C3!
